    It's called ranked-choice voting, and I'm all for normalizing it, for all the reasons you've stated.

    The only thing im not a fan of is the eye patch and the battle damaged chest on the larger headmaster. You mean to tell me you reformated your whole city bot body but couldnt fix your damn eye ? Thats some Funpub type s**t.

    Not planning on getting this but it looks super cool. If I had the space and the money, it'd be cool to have.

    Was gonna argue this, but that does seem more 'Transformers-ish' than 'Super Change Robo Mechabot-1'.
    I suspect that more people - like myself - would be for a Sentinel or whatever they're called.

    Uh-huh. Well, that's not my anecdotal observation. This is possibly confirmation bias on your part

    That'ssss....a theory. Or an opinion.

    Me, too, but, y'know, we're EXTREMELY vocal.

    Yeah, I'm super regretting not buying Blackarachnia when I saw her, cause now the pegs are clogged with Warpath and Arcee.

    It is annoying when hardcore "GeeWunners" think they're crafting a believable narrative. Beast Wars is a part of "G1" continuity and canon. Get over it.

    Does Hasbro get feedback when things sell out?
    'cause G.I.Joe: Declassified have been a bi-otch to find in brick-and-mortar, as is the Retro Collection and Star Wars: TBS & TVC.

    Never say never but I'd be surprised at this point. That would be the fifth run of that mold (Hasbro, SDCC, Legends, Grand Max) and, if they have any plans for Brave Maximus, they should probably save it for him as a send off.

    Seriously, where was everyone when BBTS was sitting on a pre-order for half a year and then sitting on stock for the other half of the year? Geez Louise...

    If kingdom didn't have an G1 toys in it, I probably would have not picked up any of the Beast Wars toys. I would've ignored it like I do Studio Series. Beast Wars was a fun show, but I just really don't like how organic animal transformers work (animal parts hanging off looks worse than car parts hanging off to me). I'm glad Beast Wars fans are getting what they wanted, but understand that it's ok that it is not a full Beast Wars line. If Beast Wars toys sell well, I imagine you'll get a lot of the toy only characters that you want, but it's ok that you didn't get them all in the first go. Look at how long G1 fans had to wait to get proper season 1 toys...

    Being a fan of a lot of FunPub's work, it's probably no surprise that I'm okay with having such an homage (this one being to Zone). I've said how much I hate the chest, but I'm perfectly fine with the eyepatch.

    What does the cybertronian text next to his feet in the promo images say?

    I just dont like when they over-do the human type customs on robots. It makes it look less believable as an alien race. Just because they were drawn by humans doesnt mean they have to share Earth customs on another planet. Biggest perpetrator of all time: Windblades stupid Geisha/Kabuki head.

    It didn't sell poorly, it was made to order/needed a minimum preorder. That threshold was met, therefore it was a success. Not reaching a final stretch goal does not mean it sold poorly.

    I wish people would stop perpetuating this myth. It’s simply not true.

    Same, but this is a fandom that likes to perpetuate misinformation on a daily basis at times

    As someone who got back into Transformers last year after stopping collecting for 12 years when I was 13 this whole fandom divide is weird to me. I never knew about the whole "Trukk not Monkee" thing growing up or the hate for the Unicron Trilogy. Just because other characters are getting figures from different shows besides G1 doesn't mean Hasbro is not going to keep making G1 figures.

    In general, I agree with you, and there's a real conversation we could have on that phenomenon within Transformers. The patch simply doesn't bother me in this context, is all.
